Russell Falls at Mount Field National Park Tasmania, Australia

Russell Falls at Mount Field National Park 

Tasmania, Australia

Mount Field National Park is distinguished by its wide range of popular short, medium and longer walks. There are two main sections to the park: the Russell Falls (pictured above) area near the Visitor Centre and the area around and above Lake Dobson, 16 kilometres (10 miles) away along a winding gravel road. The grove of tall, palm-like pandani plants on the shores of the lake has a Tolkein charm. Higher still, the Tarn Shelf takes you to the edge of precipices overlooking glimmering pools on the rim of the mountain and expansive lakes in the valley below.
